COVID-19 Visitor Guildlines

Windermere is asking for the support and understanding of our visitors in helping us minimise the risk of COVID-19.

Windermere continues to take guidance from Public Health England and the Boarding Schools’ Association. Taking this into account, we are now limiting access to the site to essential visitors only. If you are unsure as to whether your proposed visit is considered essential, please email the School Reception, reception@windermereschool.co.uk

If your visit to Windermere is an essential one, we would nevertheless ask that you refrain from visiting if:

  • you have travelled from or transited through any of the countries or areas that are currently on ‘lockdown’ in the past 14 days.
  • you have developed a fever (above 37.8C) or a new, continuous cough within the last seven days.
  • anyone in your household is required to self-isolate in accordance with Government guidelines.

Along with all members of the Windermere community, any visitors to the School should wash their hands with soap and water before leaving home and once they arrive at Windermere. Gel hand sanitiser will also be available on arrival and throughout your visit.

For the avoidance of potential embarrassment, we would also like to advise you that the School is currently operating a ‘no handshake’ policy for all members of its community.

We apologise for not being able to give you our usual warm welcome, but we must take the current situation very seriously and look after the welfare of our pupils and staff.

If you have any questions, please contact the member of staff you were due to visit.
